I am a very young pianist, so young in fact, I have only composed 7 pieces that one could argue are "cheaters pieces," given that I made them with notation software. I am having trouble composing a real piece, mostly because I only know a few rhythms by hand, but so many by head (I'll explain that if you like, just say so) and I find it difficult to come up with chords that work together. If that isn't bad enough, I am a beginner at playing with both hands.
But that has not stopped me from attempting
By Chopin: Opus 46, Opus 10 numbers 1, 3, 9 & 12 (I am currently practicing 12 now for a recital) Opus 25 No. 10 Opus 53, Opus 40 No. 1 & Opus 35, the third movement. (the list goes on)
I hope this motivates someone.
